Efforts are being made by officials in North Dakota in order to promote products from the state in Ukraine, a recent report noted.
According to the Fargo-Moorhead Forum, a model farm is in the process of being built in Ukraine, which will be used to demonstrate and sell agricultural equipment, along with other products, produced in the state.
"Developing this model farm is a natural progression in our continuing efforts to expand North Dakota's global reach and generate export sales that help drive our state's economic growth," Jack Dalrymple, lieutenant governor for the state, was quoted as saying.
The paper stated that construction has already started on a warehouse. Furthermore, Jeff Zent, communications director for the North Dakota Trade Office, told the new outlet that seed and agricultural equipment will be sent to the country in time for the planting season in spring.
North Dakota isn't alone when it comes to dealing with agriculture in far-off areas. The U.S. Army recently reported that soldiers in Iraq delivered a number of pieces of agricultural equipment to help out farmers in the northern part of the country.
